TOKYO THROUGH THE LENS – THE MOST INTERESTING PLACES FOR A PHOTOSESSION (part 1)
Tokyo is not only the capital, but also the epicenter of all the most interesting and incredible that can only be found in Japan. Tourists who come to the Land of the Rising Sun most often begin to get acquainted with it precisely with Tokyo.
The Japanese capital is a unique cocktail of antiquity, cultural centers, monuments, natural parks and striking modern architecture with many entertainment centers, clubs and hotels. It is interesting both in summer and in winter, spring and autumn.
It is quite difficult for an inexperienced tourist visiting a city for the first time to navigate many interesting places and sights, especially if a visit here is designed for only a few days. Moreover, any tourist is trying to bring home not only souvenirs, but also successful pictures, and if you can not imagine life without social networks and selfies, then successful photos are an especially important element of any trip.
Let’s get acquainted with some of the attractions that are especially popular among tourists and will become excellent places for a photo shoot, both professional and amateur.
CATS FULFILLING WISHES IN GOTOKUJI TEMPLE
Gotokuji Temple is a very unusual place, even for locals. A feature of this shrine is a huge number of cat figurines throughout its territory. Artificial pussies surround the Buddhist sculpture of the goddess of mercy Canon. True, there are many statuettes and small sculptures of cats not only around the goddess, but also around the temple itself.
Local divine cats are called “maneki-neko.” They believe that these sculptures, as well as their images, bring good luck and happiness.
Tourists visiting the Gotokuji Temple never leave without a cat souvenir, as well as without the most beautiful pictures in the background of the temple and its surroundings.
A visit to this place will be one of the most unusual excursions that you will remember about upon arrival home.
TORI GATE IN NEDZU TEMPLE – JAPAN’S BUSINESS CARD
Many people call the Nezu Temple not only Tokyo, but also all of Japan. All thanks to the memorable numerous scarlet Torii gates leading deep into the temple complex. They become the main element in the photographs of tourists coming here.
Nezu is located near the city center, which makes his visit even more convenient. Despite the proximity to the central streets of one of the largest megacities in the world, it is very calm here, it seems that peace here is eternal. The territory of the temple is filled with revitalization only in the spring, during the flowering of azaleas and the holding of a flower festival. In other seasons, you can escape from the bustle of the city and take priceless pictures.
